We just came back from a 5 night stay (02.04.2015) at this hotel and were mostly pleased with our choice. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment (room 27) on second floor. The ocean views were breathtaking and the infinity pool was clean and refreshing. There is one main pool but not very big. The other 2 pools are smaller... More

Resort and pools are awesome! Every unit has a balcony with water view and the 3 infinity pools were very welcoming. Although we loved the location and our room, there are some things that renters must be aware of: it is a bit of a steep incline from the town center, so, even though it is quite close, it may...

Overall we were really pleased with this place. The apartment was very nice, clean and well-furnished with a great balcony area with sea views. The reception staff were mostly helpful. The airport transfers were cheap and with friendly operators. The pools are nice and clean. We had a leak late one night and the out-of-hours staff arranged a plumber pretty... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in February. The location is fabulous - 3 minute walk to main strip in Airlie beach and 7 minute walk to the Marina. The views from the rooms and from the pools is absolutely magnificent! The pools are gorgeous. The service is great. The rooms are absolutely amazing - very large, have a full kitchen... More

Really great place. Three small pools, massive apartment with large kitchen. Only few minutes walk up hill from the main strip. You could hear the backpackers bars from the balcony, but not excessive. Aircon in all rooms, very clean and well furnished.

The pictures of the hotel sold it to me for a three day break with my son and his girlfriend. The room was ok, a little bit of TLC would go a long way though, it's very dated and not the cleanest hotel you will ever stay in. The guy on reception was friendly but to my amazement he tried... More

My new wife and I booked this hotel two months in advance of our Australian honeymoon. This was the place that we were going to splurge and really treat ourselves. On our whole trip this was the hotel we were most excited for. We arrived at the hotel around 3:00pm. Upon our arrival, there was a very friendly young man... More
